Storyboard Text

  • Early in King John's reign, he lost most of his empire in northern France and spent the next decade fighting expensive battles to win it back.
  • King John 1214 AD
  • I totally didn't lose like all of Northern France, I just lose the battles to win it back!
  • To pay for the expenses, John taxed his Barons. As the funds started to run out, King John rose their taxes.
  • I don't have enough money for my next battle! I must tax the Barons once again! Wait, even a better idea! I'll raise the taxes for the 11th time!
  • While King John kept taxing and stealing the Barons' money, land and religious rights, the Barons formed a plan...
  • Yes! Not only am I stinking rich, but I also have enough funds to win back my empire!
  • This is enough! He takes everything we own!
  • I know what we can do! We'll form an army, take over London, and force that bastard to listen to us! We must revolt!
  • And so the Barons seized control of London and agreed with the king that they shall meet at Runnymede to sort things out.
  • So on the 15th of June, the Magna Carta was officially signed. The Magna Carta explained the rights of civilians and was later adopted by other future kings.
  • 15th of June, 1215 Runnymede
  • You must sign this! Don't raise tax without our consent, respect the rights of the church...
  • FINE!
